Dear all
I did create my new windows mobile application using VS2008 and C#, .NETFRameWork3.5 & SQL Compact 3.5.
I when I try to test my application on windows mobile device I deploy the application from inside VS2008, everything is working very good.
But now I want to install this application on 340 devices.
The problem is I don’t know what are the required prerequisites to be installed on the device before installing my application?
Please note that our devices is Motorola MC70 & MC75 with operating system WM5 & WM6.5
I did small homework by installing the following:
1.      1-sqlce.dev.ENU.ppc.wce5.armv4i.CAB
2.      2-sqlce.ppc.wce5.armv4i.CAB
3.      3-sqlce.repl.ppc.wce5.armv4i.CAB
4.      4-NETCFv35.wm.armv4i.cab
5.      5-NETCFv35.Messages.EN.wm.cab
6.      Install my application.
But when I try to access the SDF database I have this error:
Access to the database file is not allowed.
[File name = Path\SDFName.sdf]
Please advise?
Thanks
